I did this on Cor and not Shy because I'm.... lazy-
Ok, here we go-
The Columbia Space Shuttle was the first space shuttle. It was launched on April 12, 1981 and it returned on April 14 after orbiting the Earth 36 times.
*NASA has selected you for the next space mission that will last over 6 months. You are allowed to bring 2 personal items with you. Which two items would you choose and why?
*You have been selected as the pilot for the next NASA space flight and you get to choose your destination. What planet or other space destination would you choose to visit and why?
Thorn pulled his satchel closer to himself, nervous. He had no experience with space or flying at all and was filled with doubts about bringing the wrong things, but he kept them anyways. Six months didn't seem like long enough to take a break from Earth, but it was all he had.
His inkstained hands sub-consciously reached into his bag, pulling out a small deck of cards. He opened the box, pulling the cards out and shuffling them awkwardly with his hands. He had decided a while ago that, no matter what else he brought, he was going to take his cards with him. They were the last things connecting him to Crux, and he managed to hide them from Print to avoid them being taken away.
Thorn had taught himself to shuffle the cards without setting them down in numerous different ways, and he had figured out how to slip them into his sleeve within seconds. They had kept him sane.
The second thing he brought was a light brown wire rose-- a small, detailed sculpture of a rose Cross showed him how to make in their spare time. It was messy and uneven, poorly made, but it was one of the most special things to him and he tried to carry it everywhere with him. Print called it childish, but Thorn ignored his remarks.
The taxi he was in pulled into the space station, and he quickly put his cards back into the box and slipped the box into his satchel. He took a deep breath, pulled his small bag over his shoulder, and clambered out of the car.
Oh also, this is the most depressing sentence ever, enjoy-
"Cor, you never realize how many ways you can destroy someone's life until you control them~!"
